5 Unique websites to find a job in IT
Most recently, I changed my place of work, due to the crisis in the world and in the company, and I came up with the idea - to write an article and mention the places where I was looking for a new job.
Of course, you will not find LinkedIn or Indeed on this list, I tried to make this list as unpredictable as possible for you.
I write about this site quite often. For example, I mentioned it as one of the best sites for practicing and learning SQL and Python. Hacker Rank is not only a great platform for training hard skills, but you can also find job boards there.

The convenience of this board is that a potential employer already sees your hard skills and the skills that you possess in general. To do this, of course, you need to get certificates for the skills in which you are a pro. It's quite easy and won't take much time.

At the time of writing this article, there are 714 vacancies posted on the job board. Judge for yourself whether this is a lot or a little, but I can only say that it will be difficult for a beginner here, since most positions require significant experience.

Most of you have probably heard of Product Hunt. For those who haven't, Product Hunt is "a place for product-loving enthusiasts to share and geek out about the latest mobile apps, websites, hardware projects, and tech creations." In short, it is a platform where startups are placed. And these startups sometimes require smart specialists.

Vacancies are most often posted for American startups, sometimes there are European ones and vacancies with a remote work format.
Unfortunately, there are not many vacancies here - at the time of writing, there are no more than 100, but if you want to work in a startup, you have enough skills and knowledge, I think you can easily find a job on Product Hunt.
I will say right away - this is a very exotic place to look for work. Firstly, Kickstarter is not what it once was, and sections, for example, Apps and Web, collect pennies compared to projects about waterproof backpacks and mega light powerbanks. Secondly, it is difficult to find a really worthwhile project that you want to work with.
There is no job board on Kickstarter itself. By adding it to my list, I meant that you can write to the authors of the project and purposefully offer help in what you understand - it all depends solely on you. (Part of the screenshot is blurred - I thought it would be wrong to insert a screenshot of someone else's project and profile).
Job on Kickstarter
Once again, looking for a job on Kickstarter is exotic. There are few worthy projects here, and very few raise sufficient funds for implementation. But if you believe in the project and are ready to help others, then why not.
Startup.jobs is a platform aimed at finding a job specifically in a startup (who would have thought)

There are a lot of vacancies here. There are also vacancy announcements from large IT companies. I consider startup.jobs to be the best alternative to LinkedIn.

In all other respects, I think that this is a typical job site, similar in interface and design to indeed.

Another rather exotic way to find a job (more like a part-time job). There are many subreddits where this can be done. Here is a list of some of them:
- r/forhire(very strict posting rules)
Perhaps these are the most active subreddits at the moment.
